Creativity Overflow

Creativity Overflow

There have been quite a few moments over the last several weeks where I've had to step back and take in how lucky I feel right now.  I have so many different creative projects on the go and it's felt really fulfilling for me. I've always been a creative being but have lacked direction and felt as though the best way to practice creativity was safely - within our home, and our lives, where it's understood and appreciated and valued.  But I've always had this desire somewhere deep down to find my voice and platform to confidently have my art seen.

July Long Weekend

July Long Weekend

I woke up early this morning remembering that I haven't blogged in awhile and feeling the desire to but also happy at the notion that life has been so full and I've been enjoying summer so much that I just haven't had the time.  Last weekend we spent 3 days in BC, at my family's cottage, with friends.  It was perfect.

Summer Solstice Dinner

Summer Solstice Dinner

Summer 2017 is officially here!  I'm a big believer in celebrating any chance you get, and summer is something to celebrate!  So, we collaborated with friends to put together this beautiful, delicious al fresco dinner to ring in sunny days, warm nights, windows open, too many glasses of rose and the first of many dinners on our patio.

Date Night // June

Date Night // June

Earlier this year James and I decided that we needed to set aside one night each week to intentionally date.  We decided on Thursday night and dubbed it Thurs-date.  James and I spend lots of time together as it is, so why set aside another night of the week to spend together (aside from adoring spending time together)?

Welcome to Wildly Us

Welcome to Wildly Us

We are so excited to introduce you to our new space - Wildly Us!  

Wildly Us is what bloomed after planting a seed nearly a year ago.  As I've learned and grown and forged a path through the last year I began feeling that it was necessary for our presence online to evolve and grow and change along with us.  This space is that.

Drumheller // Weekend Playlist

Drumheller // Weekend Playlist

Last weekend we adventured to Drumheller Alberta.  It's a stunning part of the world. Adventures + photos is my kind of day.  Plus its a nice little day trip and I don't know about anyone else but long drives are when James and I have the most life-giving convo.  We often end up turning the podcast off or the music way down because we get into such great conversation.  Re-connection.  It's where a lot of sparks fly for idea, thoughts, change, growth, learning etc.  Dinner and road-trips are where the magic happens.  (Which for some reason makes me think of the Seinfeld episode where George has a phone conversation with a new girl and talks about how great they are on the phone together....anyone?)

Sensitivity + Gatherings

Sensitivity + Gatherings

Have you ever spent your time doing something that leaves you with this off feeling that you just can’t shake?  Social engagements and interaction often cause this for me.  I am a pretty sensitive person.  Not sensitive as in thin skinned.  Sensitive as in I pick up on everything going on around me and absorb a lot of energy and emotion. Energy and emotion where others are able to be like a rock in water and allow it to flow over, around and off of them, not through them.  I’m more like sand in that analogy. So after social interaction I often feel like I have a lot to process.  I used to mistake this quality in myself as weakness.  Sensitivity is often equated to being weak, the opposite of strength and empowerment.  But things are only weaknesses if you own them as that.  And since sensitivity is not necessarily something I want to change about myself, instead I’ve changed the way I see it in the context of my life.  Being sensitive has now become my superpower that I’ve just started learning how to manage.
